On our regular stays at the hunter valley we always went here. This was always our favourite. One day we went in for lunch and they refused to do a meal at lunch which was in the dinner menu. They were not polite in advising us of this. We have not returned and they lost a regular client.

Able to accommodate 20 people in private rooms (range of room standards from large suites to standard) this is a great venue for a private event, meeting or group booking. The staff are amazing, with no request an issue. Meals are fantastic - including great cooked breakfasts. Great space available for meetings or private dinning. Centrally located, and a team...

Love this place. The rooms are spacious, clean and the place is quiet enough for one to totally unwind. There is a restaurant at the hotel which serves great pasta. A little vineyard is just at the doorstep of the lodges and it makes a beautiful backdrop to any photos. You wake up in the morning to the crisp air...

Location is perfect, right in the centre of Pokolbin. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and the lodge that we stayed in was beautiful. I could see myself spending weeks chilling out here. We are already planning our next trip in October and would recommend to my friends and family.

My husband and I stayed here for unfortunately only 1 night last weekend. We stayed in a spa loft suite. The room was lovely and clean and quite a decent size. A small breakfast is provided for you in the fridge of yogurt, english muffins, tea and coffee etc. The spa was a great size. There is a little veranda...

We chose Hermitage Lodge because of it's proximity to another venue. We had a family wedding to attend in Pokolbin and needed somewhere close by to stay. Because it was a weekend we had to stay 2 nights, but that worked well as the wedding was at 3p.m. The accommodation was quite superior in a vineyard studio room and included...

We felt very lucky to discover this place among the many choices in the Hunter. Our one bedroom queen suite with balcony and views across the vineyard was just perfect! Cozy gas space heating for the cool nights, very comfortable lounge area and wide screen TV, large bathroom and very comfortable bed. We ate dinner twice in the restaurant and...

We stayed for 3 nights, our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable, breakfast was really good and plenty of it. The staff were exceptionally helpful and dinner in the restaurant was good for the price. We would definately stay here again and highly recommend it to those looking for a quiet location with lovely view over the vineyard.

Hermitage Lodge was just as advertised. We stayed in a premier suite with beautiful views over the vines even through the rain! We upgraded to a cooked breakfast on one morning and were not disappointed. Staff all very friendly and accommodating. We would absolutely recommend and return ourselves if we are visiting the area.

This boutique hotel with all the rooms overlooking the vineyard. I had the Deluxe spa suite loft and it came with a jacuzzi. The bed was on the loft and comfortable. The continental breakfast was prepared in the fridge daily. I had my breakfast in the morning at the balcony overlooking the vineyard. it was peaceful & beautiful. The wifi...
